Clavens Charles abuse photo -- allegedly attacked by Cedric Benson
As we previously reported, Cedric and his now ex-roommate -- a guy named Clavens Charles -- got into an argument last weekend in Texas over their living arrangements, when all of the sudden Benson allegedly rocked Charles in the face.

According to the police report, Benson allegedly continued to strike Charles "with several more closed fists all over Clavens face resulting in severe injury to his face."

Cedric's attorney released a statement, claiming the NFL star was provoked in the attack -- and Charles was exploiting the incident as an opportunity to extort the running back.

Charles' attorney shot back with his own statement, calling the alleged attack "an unprovoked, violent assault" ... DENYING the extortion claims -- insisting Charles hasn't made a single request for money since the incident.

According to his attorney, Charles has already incurred THOUSANDS of dollars in medical bills ... and still has further medical procedures pending.

You need to get up on the true story here, TMZ! This was a lovers spat. Cedric Benson is a closeted black man on the down low. Anyone close to Clavens can tell you that he is gay, and Cedric was his boyfriend!

Ask Cedric and see how he reacts!

Looks like a case of domestic violence to me. A lover's spat is being way too nice. Physical abuse is never ok.

Bubba,

I'd like to see you walk up to the next black man you see, and make that same comment...I didn't think so. It's easy to talk that stupid s**t behind a keyboard.

Exhibit 11,798,899 to why NFL players should not make millions of dollars.

Justice would be...sending Cedric to prison, paying the victim 3 million dollars plus medical expenses, and banning Cedric from the NFL.

Cedric Benson has a long criminal history of assaults and attacks. He is a P.O.S. who needs to be locked up with hardened fellow criminals. I also hope this beating victim sues Benson for payment of the medical bills AND for pain and suffering. I'd say 200,000 dollars should cover it. Next case please.
